You Oughta Know Alanis Morissette Is Still Going Strong

By • Mar 20th, 2018 • Category: Live Show Reviews

The demand for Alanis Morissette is as great today as it was in the 90’s. In fact, an additional show had to be added to her appearance at The Joint at Hard Rock Tulsa in order to appease her fan base. 2 sold out shows in a matter of 3 days proved her worthiness in the music scene.

Joined with 2 guitarists, Morissette took a stripped down, more gentle approach to her set. 16 songs, all acoustic still had the same impact a full band would have. The power that is her voice stands isolated in her performance. Known for her mezzo-soprano range and unique articulation, the impossible has happened. She has enriched with age.

Through anecdotes of love, sadness, hurt, and babies she took her crowd on the journey she as been on for decades. The stories behind, “Rest,” “You Learn,” “Head Over Feet,” and “Ironic” gave an insight to her thoughts and mind set while creating the masterpieces. One of the most comedic stories was for “So Unsexy.” She explained, “I’ve never been a fan of tracks and in order to hit certain notes, you just have to look unsexy!”

The most dominant of the acoustic tracks was one of the closers “You Oughta Know.” The emotion that has always been associated with this song did not lack here. The raw anger and pain that first defined the hit was felt in her delivery. The audience allowed her to consume them.

Alanis Morissette will be touring the US through spring and will begin an overseas tour in June. Time is of the essence. The time is now.
